Additionally, the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is also supported by Europeana and can be used for displaying images on Europeana.

Content Tier 3 (Europeana as a distribution platform for non-commercial reuse)

If you want to make use of Europeana as a distribution platform that enables the use of your image files by private individuals, educators and researchers, then you need to provide at least a direct link to an image file of at least 0.95 megapixel in size (e.g. ~1,200*800 pixels). In addition, you also need to make sure that the text documents come with one of the seven rights statements that allow reuse

  • 4 Creative Commons licences: CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-SA, CC BY-NC-ND;

  • 3 RightsStatements.org's statements: NoC-NC, NoC-OKLR, InC-EDU).

Content Tier 4 (Europeana as a free reuse platform)

If you want to make use of Europeana as a platform that enables the free reuse of your image files elsewhere then, in addition to the criteria described for Tier 3 above, you also need to make sure that the image file comes with a rights statement that allows free reuse (CC BY, CC BY-SA CC0, or PDM).
